The InnCrowd Hostel
Reviewed 12 November 2009

I stayed at the InnCrowd hostel in June and it was a great experience, a mix of ages from 18 to 35, clean welcoming and comfortable. Many solo travellers.
The only inconvenient that you can find is that there are unisex bathrooms, so except to see anyone from the opposite sex in the toilet while you shower, etc.
However even that creates a sense of community. As a solo traveller I met such a nice group of people that then I arranged to meet again later on my trip.
If you are travellng by yourself or only with one other friend I think it will be your best option!
basic breakfast included! I highly recommend it!

I really don't understand the reviews on this site, why are they so scathing? It's a hostel right, id doesn't claim to be anything more, but for a hostel it's damn good.

Loads of free computers and wifi with unlimited super-fast internet. More services than you can stick at, laundry, printing, tours, rent guide books, buy cheap guidebooks. cool chillout / common room with DVD player & massive plasma screen, sofas & bean bags.

rooms are decent sized, clean dorms with AC set to a sensible temp & only on at night - which is how it should be.

They're laid-back about when you pay for stuff. The staff are super super friendly and have an astonishing ability to remember everything about you.

the biggest negative for me:
with all the free internet & big TV, people don't talk to each other enough.

stayed here for 3 nights on a cheap and cheerful stopover on the way to Oz.

booked a private double room as not good with other people snoring and the room itself was basic but good. double bed with a single bunk above it. aircon was fabulous! huge TV and you can hire DVD's from reception. the double rooms are all in the 'other' building, just round the corner from the main.

bathrooms were not the 'country club' style suggested online. they're only in the main building. the showers were ok. but the toilets - both of them were difficult to manage. one of them you couldn't shut the door if your legs were not akin to those of an anorexic. the other you could get stuck in if someone left the other toilet door ajar. - this happened a few times and was quite amusing when you could hear peoples calls for help in the shower.

breakfast was basic but good. reception staff were helpful and nice. and they look after your bags for the day for a small fee.

i wouldn't stay there again. i didn't feel the 'other' building was all that secure and needs a good fix up.

but the one time we used the facilities in the main building - showers and bathroom area was fab.

If you're looking for a hostel with no frills, where u can crash after a long day of shopping, sight seeing and partying this would be the best choice. Rooms are dorm like, simple yet properly furnished with the essentials. Yes the toilets are small and cramped but it wasn't really a problem.

The people running this hostel were very friendly and helpful and was always around to provide assistance when needed.

One thing i really liked at the Inn Crowd was its common areas where one could just chill and watch a bit of TV or read. I met some nice people during my stay and would definitely be coming back.

Not really the best place to stay in Singapore. Not that is was terrible over there, but I'm sure there are better hostels in Singapore.

I didn't really like the neighbourhood of this hostel: little India, with some friendly people, but some are really pushy and hassle you to buy in their shops.

The hostel itself, you need an access code to get in, which is good, but you can't lock the doors of the dorms! They offer free lockers, but they are so tiny that you can hardly put anything in there.

They give you a sheet and a blanket, you have to make your own bed, which seemed a bit odd to me, I never have had to do that before (and I've stayed in more hostels). Also you have to take off your shoes, which seemed a bid ridiculous too, to me.

Also, they offer free internet- 30 mins per night stay, but there are only 4 computers available, and they are occupied all the time, so you have to go somewhere else anyway.

They also offer breakfast but you don't really have much choice.

On the positive side, it's a fairly clean hostel, and close to the mrt station. Staff was friendly.

Don't think I'd stay here again though.

Have never come aross a worst hostel. We booked our stay through their website months in advance after looking through the photos on their website. We had to pay a nights stay upfront online and were to stay for three nights. We took the airport shuttle bus to the hostel arriving sometime after 8pm (had advised hostel of late arrival in advance). Bus could only drop us at end of Dunlop street so being night we were treking through what looked like a really dingy street trying to find the place. Once spotted (not easy) we went to check in and they insisted on full payment of the three nights then and there. Being as tired as we were and just wanting to fall into bed (would have tried to find dinner but streets did not look like the sort we wanted to venture out into at night) we paid the full amount and a guy lead us out of the hostel and around to another street - he did not slow down nor wait for us with our heavy backpacks and was hard to keep up. Staff checking us in were not impolite but certainly not friendly or polite either and as soon as we paid gave us a card with a whole list of rules on it - most of which i was not going to be doing (taking shoes off in showers and toilets and leaving gear elsewhere and not near bed). Anyway we were taking into other place around the corner, had door of room opened and then were basically dumped by the guy who took off back to the other hostel i assume. The room was bare. We booked a double room and this was nothing like the photos on the website (i told them when booking if the double in the website wasn't available we wouldn't bother booking as we wanted a decent double room). In fact all the photos on the website are extremely misleading and not as the hostel actually is. The double bed in the small cell like room had a double on the bottom and a single on top - like a bunk bed. The room had no windows, a tiny fan going right at the top of the high walls, concrete floor, a stand with a tv on it that didn't work and that was it, not very much room either. We decided to sleep on it and have a better look in the morning. In the morning I wore thongs everywhere - sorry but no thongs in those showers and toilets??? There were two toilets - that shared a door - so really just one dirty toilet and three showers right next to the toilets - only one had a door on it that covered shower front - important because there was no wall opposite - the showers literally faced all the roofs of the neighbouring houses - where the people hang their washing and look out their windows etc. No where to put stuff in showers etc, lucky my partner was with me as i had to throw my clothes out to him and have him pass me stuff. Downstairs where our room was there was a small unused almost sitting area, no internet, breakfast facilities or anything as shown on website - these are all around in dunlop street venue so you have to go around there. Also no mirror or anything in the room. Anyway we went to have the free breakfast and to use the internet to book elsewhere. Had some toast, and then googled for anywhere else to stay last minute. Found a hotel in Chinatown and booked two nights there - cost was the cheapest we could find £50 a night for the two of us but didn't want to chance another backpackers for the two nights and wanted to enjoy Singapore and get on with seeing things etc. Hotel 81 was the hotel we booked into. Anyways being as we knew we weren't getting any money back from the backpackers we kept the key for all our nights - weren't going to have them get some other travellers money as well. We had a wonder round Little India, then took or bags and checked into Chinatown. Best decision ever. Hotel room was small and just space for double bed but has ensuite and kettle, airconditioning etc. Fine for crashing out and much nicer then the backpackers. (Oh also noticed in backpackers that with few people around we felt like we were alone in the venue we were in and felt very unsafe, lock very flimsy and no fire alarms or fire escapes to say we were locked in a little cell room - not good). Anyway Chinatown was great atmosphere, easy to get around and enjoyed rest of stay. Partner went and had breakfast again on the Inn Crowd before returning the key the last morning we were there but overall a horrible place the worst I have come across.

a great hostel locatd in little india. Centrl abdour 5 min walk to metro which is the fastest and easiest way to get round singapore.

We stayed in a double room so i am not sure what the dorms were like. Our room very simple but that was all we needed. It had air con.

We shared a bathroom with others which was fine. We never had to wait to use one of the three showers. Only one toilet but again never had to wait for anyone else.

Its not huge hostel so there isnt likely to ever be queues.

The staff were fine and helpful although there was one girl who was ude to people in front of us in the line. just be friendly to them and they will be friendly to you.

We had a late flght so we payed $8 and kept ourluggage in storage. then we were able to shower and use the interenet after a day of sight seeing.
